Rosa Mendes in “Memorable in Mexico”
We’re debuting a new format for our Eye Candy posts – complete with more detailed critiques and “graded” categories. View the photoshoot we’ve “hung” on our wall, read our critique, vote, and last but not least – sound off in the comments!
The Look: Rosa keeps with the tropical colors, sporting a bright orange top and white shorts over a similarly-hued bikini. Paired with some statement earrings and some serious heels, she is clearly looking to stand out – and she certainly achieves that. The colors work well with her complexion, whereas they probably wouldn’t on someone a bit paler. The outfit would look a little trashy in a more conventional setting, but poolside it’s perfect. Grade: A-
The Poses: An unbuttoned shirt compliments her relaxed poses – she doesn’t have to “sex it up” for the photos, as the look is already doing it for her. The photos look so natural it almost looks as if she if we accidently came across her lounging poolside and broke out the camera. Grade: A
Uniqueness: Several other Diva are probably going to end up with Mexico photoshoots, so this doesn’t appear as unique as Mickie’s did yesterday when she was the only one. Still, it’s nice to see Rosa in a more relaxed look and setting. Grade: B-
Overall: Rosa still has her signature flashy style, but implements it in a way that suits the shoot. She poses naturally and looks right at home in the steamy setting. Seeing this makes me wonder what she could have done on one of the old, classic Diva bikini photoshoots. Desert Heat photoshoot, anyone? Grade: A
